Ohio State's game Monday at Virginia Tech is loaded with storylines: The Hokies gave the defending national champs their only loss in 2014. The Buckeyes are ranked No. 1. Braxton Miller makes his receiver debut. Ohio State still has not announced a starting quarterback. And Joey Bosa is among a group of suspended Buckeyes.
Here's another: Ohio State and Virginia Tech will wear matching helmet stickers to honor the WDBJ-7 shooting victims, Alison Parker and Adam Ward.
Virginia Tech revealed the stickers Sunday, and Ohio State announced Thursday it was given permission to provide its players with the stickers.
Parker and Ward were killed at Smith Mountain Lake, just over an hour drive from Blacksburg. The Labor Day game, scheduled for 8 p.m. ET on ESPN, will include a 30-second moment of silence in remembrance of the victims before the national anthem.
Parker and Ward both went to high schools in Virginia. Parker earned a communications degree at Virginia Tech. Ward attended James Madison University, also in Virginia.
The Hokies won last year's opener in Columbus, 35-21.
